Synopsis:
Helmed by the legendary Arthur Penn and starring Academy Award winner Mary Steenburgen, "Dead of Winter" is a seasonal suspenser par excellence! Loosely inspired by the 1945 classic "My Name is Julia Ross", this eighties update presents Steenburgen as an aspiring actress who is lured out to a country retreat in Canada, in ice-cold weather, to audition for a well-paid dream job. Unfortunately for her, though, a sinister plan is being unravelled around her - which will culminate in entrapment, torment, torture and a blood curdling revelation!

Enjoyable thriller - Dead of Winter review by TB

Over the years I have thought about this film, having seen it once at the cinema and never on TV. It is not a slasher movie, as I've heard it described, but a dark thriller that keeps the viewer guessing. Roddy McDowall is quite creepy in a gentlemanly way and Mary Steenbergen is excellent in the main role and one hopes it will end well for her, especially as her husband sets off rather belatedly, to find her. This film is best watched on a cold, wintry night. Highly recommended.
